I love photographing street cooking.   The lights, smoke, contrast of color make for very cinematic pictures.

I stopped to shoot this bike as I loved the red light falling on it.  I was surprised to see the sign behind it.  There seem to be a lot of 'adult toy' shops popping up everywhere.

I met up with a few friends for Mongolian Hot Pot (similar to Japanese Shabu Shabu).   You basically get a pot of hot water and lots of beef and vegetables to cook in it.
